Two Snowbird jets took off from the Kamloops airport today, more than three months after being grounded because of a deadly crash.

Captain Jennifer Casey was killed in the crash on May 17th,while the pilot, Captain Richard MacDougall was injured.

Kamloops councillor Bill Sarai lives in the Brocklehurst neighbourhood where the plane crashed and says the sound of the planes leaving has taken on new meaning.

He says it's an emotional time for residents and had they been given more notice, there would likely have been a long line of residents paying tribute on the road to the airport.
